now if have time .
Go treasure hunting.
"the Nihon rice merchant candlestick charting."
surely it cannot be extinct? but you may need learn Nihongo.
Surely one day will find a generation 1 translated version.
Its also nice listen songs cover versions. but i always try sight the original version.
I looked like crazy for that when I first read the thread. Was never able to find even a mention of it then, much less a copy.
Think I'll do some new looking over the holidays. I generally prefer the original version of things as well. If I can get it.
Wish me luck.
